Nice Work If You Can Get It Tickets

  • About Nice Work If You Can Get It

    In Nice Work If You Can Get It, Tony Award-winning actor Matthew Broderick returns to the stage in his first musical since The Producers, and NewYork.com has tickets for the eight to nine performances staged each week. With tickets for matinees on Sundays, Wednesdays and Saturdays, younger theater-goers have more chances to enjoy the show.

    Nice Work If You Can Get It is a contemporary musical comedy done in grand-old Broadway style, complete with sparkling chorus girls, bell-toned ingenues, brassy soubrettes and famous songs that’ll have you humming right out of the Imperial Theater. Set in 1920s Prohibition-era New York, Nice Work If You Can Get It focuses on the unlikely romance between playboy Jimmy Winter and tomboy-bootlegger Billie Bendix.

    Winter and Bendix meet sweet on a pier and things quickly get complicated when the pair wind up at the same beach house a day later, along with Winter’s wife-to-be, Bendix’s bootlegging team, a litigious prohibitionist, a police vice squad, a bevy of scantily-clad beauties and 400 illicit cases of gin hidden in a basement.

    The show opened on Broadway in April 2012 with a starry cast featuring Tony Award-nominee Kelli O’Hara as Billie (South Pacific, The Pajama Game) and two-time Tony Award winner Matthew Broderick (The Producers, film’s Ferris Bueller’s Day Off) as Jimmy. Comedic powerhouses Judy Kaye and Michael McGrath both won 2012 Tony Awards for their portrayals of teetotaler Estonia Dulworth and bootlegger Cookie McGee, respectively.

    Nice Work If You Can Get It is a completely fresh song-and-dance show that reimagines classic musical compositions from George and Ira Gershwin. Tony Award-winning director/choreographer Kathleen Marshall (The Pajama Game) and book writer Joe DiPietro (Memphis) pack this rambunctious love story with memorable tunes such as “Let’s Call the Whole Thing Off,” “Someone to Watch Over Me,” “I’ve Got a Crush on You” and, of course, the title song “Nice Work If You Can Get It.”
